Co-ed Clothesline
By Maryfran Lorain and Kay Kuckcnberg
Warm sunshine for just a few short days encourages even the most,
pessimistic suntan seekers to take last year’s play clothes from the
back of the closet, and to begin planning this season's sun wardrobe.
Unusual hues and sturdy fabrics combine with functional designs
to make new play clothes both striking and practical. Amber and
steel gray are being used extensively to accent summer pastel shades
Contrasting plain colors with stripes and plaids adds interest to strictly
tailored shirts and shorts.
Thick toweling has come into its own for not only beach robes, but
also luxurious stoles and brief sun suits. Remember the previously
limited uses of^enim and butcher lineh? The two are now interchange
able—linen shorts and pedal pushers, denim skirts with matching
Chinese tops.
The cool freshness of sleeveless blouses places them high on the
list of new styles. Extreme necklines—very high, wide, or plunging add
variety to their' basically simple design. Taffeta, cotton, pique, and
chambray have transformed the winter bolero dress into an appro
priate beach or country costume.
Smart vests over gaily checkered skirts top any and all play out
fits from skirts top any and all play outfits from skirts to shorts. Sun
dresses with matching or contrasting stoles, which may be worn as
scarves or sashes—depending upon he way the wind blows_are a
must in the well-rounded play-time wardrobe.
Bathing suits are brief again this year, but not so scanty as in
the past. Straps are detachable, thus providing many possibilities for
additional variety. The new suits are keynoted by becomingly simple
lines which do not detract from glittering metallic materials in silver,
gold, and copper tones.
Many of the basic styles that were smart last year have been re
tained this year, so think twice before giving away your older play
clothes—they may have a bright future for this summer!
